    I took some photos the last time I was in the Mexican bakery and I thought I'd share them with you.

    This is El Bolillo - voted the best Mexican bakery in the city of Houston - and I agree! icon_wink.gif

    Here are some of the sweet breads and pastries yummy.gif

    And my Mom, holding a tray of goodies!

    Do you guys have any recipes for Mexican cookies, sweet breads or pastries you would like to share?

    Try typing the names of the ones you are interested in into the search bar. Here are the results for conchas, for example,

    Thanks for the suggestion, I've tried it:

    Mexican Sweet Bread
    I've searched Google etc. for hours, and I've found tons of recipes (maybe 50 or 60) for Conchas (or shells), and a few for Marranitos, cochintos or puerquitos (little pig, gingerbread pig), a couple for Polvor├│n (powdery cookie), OR Polvoron/Polvorones (Mexican Wedding Cookies), OR Polvorones (Mexican Shortbread Cookies) but that's about it.

    When I go to a panaderia I find at least 20 to 30 different kinds/shapes of pan dulce, but no luck shearching the internet, other than above.
    Actually I've only found two pictures of the the ones shaped like giant pretzels with large granules of sugar on them, no recipe.

    I've even found video how to make the two color horns on you-tube, (but not the recipe).

    No exageration, I'll bet I've shearched for over 20 hours total, I've even tried shearching in Spanish and tried translating, (not very good at it).

    I've found a couple of places that say the panaderias hold the recipes as secret.

    It's odd, one can find most anything on the internet, but not how to make pan dulce, including the recipes.

    I've been eating these things all my life, love them, I'd really like to try and make some.....other than Conchas.

    From a Dallas panaderia

    (Beer Empanadas)

    8 cups all-purpose flour

    3 cups vegetable shortening

    1 can (12 ounces) beer (not light)

    1 can (16 ounces) pineapple OR other fruit pie filling

    Granulated or powdered sugar

    Grease a large baking sheet.

    In a large bowl, combine flour and shortening using 2 knives or a pastry blender. Add beer and mix to form a dough. Knead until dough forms a ball and can be handled without sticking.

    Roll dough into 30 balls about size of a small lime. Using a tortilla press or rolling pin, shape balls into flat rounds, similar to tortillas.

    Drop a tablespoonful pineapple filling in center and fold dough over into shape of a turnover. Pinch together edges of dough. Pierce top of empanada with a fork. Place empanadas on baking sheet.

    Bake in preheated 350-degree oven about 15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Sprinkle each pastry with sugar while still warm. Makes about 30 empanadas.

    Pan de Muerto- although I think we have recipes posted for this here

    I did run into the same comment that no one makes these at home, they just get them in panaderias. It's like rye bread in Lithuania. No one bakes it at home, as even supermarkets will have 15 or 20 varieties available, nearly all of which are outstanding.

    Regarding how hard it is to find recipes for different panes dulces :many of them are made using the same dough recipes only baked into different shapes or with different toppings,so if you can find one recipe it can really be used for many.Sometimes you can find recipes that are used in other countries /cultures that are identical or similar.For example French Palmiers are the same as the Palmeras and are essentially just puff pastry.I can think of several Mexican pasrties made with the exact same dough.Good luck!!

    Oh good, thanks Chef #928625.
    Up here in the part of northern CA where I live there is only one Mexican Bakery and I was not sure if it was me or the bakery but had noticed that other than the topping most of the dulces tasted the same.

    "...I was not sure if it was me or the bakery but had noticed that other than the topping most of the dulces tasted the same."
    Yes, like doughnuts, I guess one can say that some of the pan dulces do taste the same, sorta like a doughnut "glaze twisty" and a glaze doughnut, they both taste the same....but, but, we eat with our eyes first, and the varity of pan dulce is such that it's fun the eat the various types. Probably the Conch, (shell), the Cuerno (horn). elote (corn), all start off with the same basic recipe, but they sure look different, and seem to "taste" different. And do a glaze doughnut and a sugar dounut really taste different?

    Now if one trys a Conch, a Marranitos/Cochinitos/Puerquitos (little pigs), a Piedras (rocks or stones), etc. they certainly taste different and have different recipes for the dough.

    Northern California?.....I was born and raised in the SF Bay area, now that I've moved to Southern Texas; funny, just can't seem to find as many Panaderias in this area.
